I'll take a look at it.

@Eschwartz: Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Unfortunately, I've moved away from Arch Linux in the last couple of months, and no longer use Sigil, so I'm unable to dedicate the time to fixing this package. I'm disowning the package, so anyone is free to step up to maintain it.

Sigil 0.8.900 has been released and is going to need changes to build. Copy-pasting the message I posted when flagging it out of date in community:

Note: The Sigil internals changed a lot, and among others include modified and incompatible upstream libraries which apparently should NOT be replaced by system libs.
e.g. Gumbo HTML5 parser is an actual fork:

Also, for the plugin architecture, python-{lxml,PIL,regex,six,html5lib} should be dependencies (optional?) as I believe the expectation is that plugins are allowed to assume those site-packages are installed and available by default. Some parts may be required to run Sigil itself.
(Not beautifulsoup4, it is forked, bundled and namespaced as sigil_bs4 because "reasons".)

Current build directions have changed:
May need some playing around.

@blackhole Ah, I don't know how much help I'll be in troubleshooting this problem, then. I don't use a Qt-based desktop environment, and sigil is one of the only Qt applications I use. You might need to seek out help either from the author of sigil, or from someone more knowledgeable about Qt applications and Plasma. Sorry I couldn't be of any help.

The problem is strange. From Lxqt is starting fine, but from Plasma is crashing. Moreover, in both, sometime it hangs, for example if I change cover...

@blackhole That's odd. Did you install sigil with pacman? If so, would you mind telling me the version and build date? You can find those by running pacman -Qi sigil. The version of sigil available through pacman runs fine on my machine, and I'm rebuilding sigil-git right now to test it out.

Let me know if you continue to have trouble with these packages, and I'll do my best to help you out.

Ok, now is installing fine.

However Sigil official and Sigil-git are both crashing now with segmentation fault.

@blackhole: Thank you for letting me know. The layout of some of the source was changed about a month ago, and I haven't built this package in quite a while. It should be fixed now (it builds fine on my machine, at any rate).

I've also added two new dependencies: qt5-multimedia and python-lxml.

install: cannot stat ‘../src/Sigil/Resource_Files/icon/app_icon_16.png’: No such file or directory

I've adopted this package, and updated the PKGBUILD a little to reflect the new git repository for sigil. Let me know if there are any problems with the changes.
